Re: Prayer: Listening, Talking, or Both?
An attorney by definition, by the way, is not a good resource when looking for the truth of a matter. An attorney is trained to support the clients position and to present only that evidence that supports the clients position.

Quite bogus. Yes there are times when attorneys advocate for a client. But that does not make them trained liars.

Re: Prayer: Listening, Talking, or Both?
You do know that I did not say they were trained liars, simply that by profession they are biased.

The idiotic thing that you actually said was that by definition, lawyers were not a "good source" when looking for the truth of a matter.

You further said that they were trained to only present evidence favoring their side. Neither of those statements are correct, and a lawyer who performed in the way you suggest would be a poor lawyer who was not following his training.

A lawyer is no more and no less than anyone else a source of information regarding a religious matter, your nonsense comment notwithstanding.
